I found an acrylic/wool mix called aran something which was nearly the same tension spec and really good value for money available here in UK, but then I wasnt sure if it would just knit up really itchy and make for a horrible blanket. Hard to tell from the internet! I really wish I hadnt bought the pattern, after all my research today, I have found out that the original rowan wool it suggested- all seasons - isnt even available in the colours they suggest any more and I really struggle to see beyond the colours I see in a pattern and make my own contrasts if that makes sense?!! I have the same problem with my quilting, I usually rely on my mum to put colours and patterns together for me - doesnt bode well for me does it?! But then, I cant stand sitting still not doing something, even when watching tv!!
